CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE TRANSPORTATION OF ENERGY MATERIALS BASED ON 1978 ARC ESTIMATES

TERA's estimates of capital requirements to transport natural gas, crude oil, petroleum products, and coal in the US by 1990 are presented. Summaries of transportation investment requirements through 1990 are tabulated for Scenarios B, C, and D. Scenario A is high supply, high demand. Scenario B is a high energy demand, low oil and gas supply case and requires most capital for transportation of all energy commodities. Scenario D requires the least amount of investment in transportation and is the opposite in terms of supply-demand pressure represented by Scenario B. Scenario D is a high oil and gas supply, low energy demand scenario. Scenario C lies predictably in the middle representing a medium case for both supply and demand. Scenario C shows the highest level of investment for oil pipelines from the other scenarios, due to a supply demand balance favoring petroleum consumption. This second report covers chapters on natural gas, crude oil, petroleum products, and coal. The 1985 estimates given are based on an interpolation of the 1990 results from the 1978 year of reference.
